Newly built homes can offer fewer hassles, high efficiency and increased customization and design details. Here’s a quick list of the top 8 reasons why so many homebuyers prefer new homes to used homes:
Why settle for someone else’s choices when you can participate in the process of designing your dream home. As a new home buyer, you can often choose cabinets, countertops, appliances, carpets and flooring. Or, take it a step further and choose gorgeous bath
and kitchen fixtures, lighting and other options that you’ll love for years to come. Your new home will reflect your style and personality, not someone else’s taste.
Want a master bedroom on the first floor? How about a walk-in closet that connects to the laundry room? Want high ceilings and a large kitchen with an open line of site to the kid-filled family room? With a new home you can choose a floor plan and room layout that fits your family’s needs.
Newly constructed homes are far more energy efficient than homes built even 5 years ago, let alone 10 or 20 years ago! Today’s new homes have a tighter-sealed building envelope (insulation, doors and windows) that helps prevent conditioned air—cool air in the summer, warm air in the winter—from escaping. These features add up to big savings all year long!
Do you know the cost to replace a roof, appliances, countertops or a water heater on a used home? A used home likely has products that may soon need replacing and are well past warranty. Your new home—and the products that comprise it—feature the latest designs and building materials and should offer you years of comfort and enjoyment before needing replacement. Not to mention a warranty that gives you instant peace of mind.
The more energy-efficient mechanics of the house also help reduce utility bills for new home buyers, Morrow says. Newly-constructed homes often include green systems and appliances—like high-efficiency stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters, furnaces, or air conditioning units—that homes built years ago might not.

When families move into a community around the same time, they often form lasting bonds of friendship and neighborliness right away. Community parties and moving trucks helps owners meet and connect.
Nothing beats the smell of freshly painted walls and wood flooring, or reflection of stainless appliances and sparkling clean countertops. The nicks in the walls and dents in the floor of a used house are a part of someone else’s memories. A used house was someone else’s dream, a new house is yours!
